Antigua / Jabberwock Beach , Antigua and Barbuda

White sandy beach for 1/2 mile length. Most everyone launches at the South end near the kite school in typical sideonshore wind direction. Wind is mostly moderate between 12-25 knots. If you had only one kite a 14m would be the most useful. January through March winds can pipe up to 30 knots for several days. May through July are the most consistent with the least amount of light wind days. Typical wind direction is East to Southeast which is sideonshore from the right (looking out to sea). Best kiting conditions are from January through July. Worst conditions during September and October(peak of hurricane season). August, November and December can be windy and also light - hit or miss these months.

More info: As far as water sports goes this beach is almost exclusively used by kiteboarders. It is also a favorite swimming beach by the locals. So far there are no restrictions for kiting on this beach. Thanks to the local kite school who works very hard to keep things safe and maintain good relations between kiters and other water users. It is a privilege, not a right, to ride on this beach and the local riders are adamant on preserving access. The beach does have nearby obstructions including a car park, road and trees so all kiters must have good basic kite handling skills. Learners and beginners without professional supervision are not allowed to practice here. The kite school has a handout with basic rules/etiquette/map that should be followed. Please take a moment to speak with the local riders and school as a matter of courtesy. There are no restrictions on when you can ride on this beach. When the wind is blowing it usually blows all day and night so you can ride from dawn to dusk. The only exception being national holidays: there are usually so many swimmers that safe kiteboarding is not practical. The kite school closes and local riders voluntarily do not ride at this beach on holidays.
